My favorite gouache supplies
As we don’t all have the same budget and needs, you have three options for each:
Beginner, medium, and advanced, from left to right.
This one has a watercolor paper 300 gsm, cold press, 24 pages, with an elastic band. Perfect for plein air.
Stilman & Birn Zeta Series
Softcover, very soft paper, almost like bristol, white paper, 270 gsm, a strong binding that allows you to paint across two pages and stays flat open.
Strathmore Watercolor Sketchbook
A large sketchbook, A4 size, 48 pages, watercolor paper 300 gsm, a bit of texture, I love it!
Arteza set of 24 colors
Yes, it’s a lot of colors, but as a beginner, you’ll love it. Good quality for a student’s grade and is a good price too.
Holbein full primaries set
Now you have warm and cool primary colors, plus a lot of white for mixes and burnt umber for convenience color. Ready-made sets are not ideal, so I made one just for you!
These pens come in different sizes and the nib doesn’t get clogged when drawing on top of gouache. Perfect!
The perfect tool to get the most of your paint tubes, because you don’t want to waste any single drop!
